What Is the use of expending money
and time on the building of good roads
if they are to bo plowed up almost as
sunn as built? Complaints come from
utmost all sections of tho county that
tin- practice of plowing Into the pub

in many places, the roads are so mir.

gle vehicle, as a result of the plowing,
into tho right of way. If this prac

of money to build roads and the pen

for good roads until we learn to take
some care cd' those thai have been

that Supervisor Pitts is making an ef

roads, but unless he inn secure the co
operation of the public he cannot pros

without nnidavlts and ev idence to con

would have a wholesome effect ami it

C. & W. C. SCHEDULES.
More than a year ago the Laurens
chamber of commerce selected a spe
cial committee for (he purpose of con
forms with the officials of the Char
leston & Western Carolina railroad
?wit,i reference to the schedules by
?which mixed trains are operated on
the Laurens and Greenville division
us well as others affecting the passen
ger traffic in and out of Laurens.
One of the improvements especially
desired was the dally operation ol
three trains between the above named
points. That, we say was what the
committee was selected for, and we
suppose it i.i still in existence. It
may have accomplished something hut
there is yet work for some one. for
Laurens ami all Intermediate points
on the Greenville division (dear on
to the Mountain city are woefully dis
criminated against when it comes to
an adequate and satisfactory passen
ger service. In this connection we
hero reproduce and endorse the fol
lowing from the Greenville News:
Laurens is some to in miles dis
tant from Greenville, and between
these two cities on the C. & W. C.
road are several prosperous and
growing towns, such as Fountain Inn
Flmps.onvllle. Cray Court. Barksdalo,
Mauldlns and OWlngS, Moth Fountain
Inn and SlmpSOnvllle are cotton mill
towns. The country between Laurens
and Greenville is thickly settled, and
has an intelligent and prosperous
population. The railroad facilities for
passengers between Greenville and
Lauren.-, are Inadequate, meagre and
ttt)?at1*fftctory. Fnrlv In the morn
ing, about 6 o'clock, a freight train
leaves Greenville for Laurens, with
a caboose in which passengers may
ride, if they are willing to put up
with the acconiodatlon, and arc not
particularly anxious as to when they
reach their destination. The through
passenger train from Greenville to
Charleston leaves Greenville about
mid-day, and pr.sseo through Laurens,
and in the afternoon, about 4:30. a1
freight train leaves Greenville, with i
a coach attached, carrying passen
gers to Laurens.
What Is necessary ami needed are
three passenger trains daily. each
way. between Groonvllle ami Laurens,
ami the commercial bodies of those
Chios ought to take this matter in
hand, nnd use their Influence to have
a satisfactory schedule Inaugurated.
We venture the opinion that within
sis months' time, the C. ci \V. C.
railroad company would lind that the
three passenger trains dally, each way
would ho well supported. Von can
not expect people to navel or induce
them to travel unless they are given
opportunity and accoinodntlons that
Passengers from Gl'COnvllle and all
way stations who patronize the morn
ing train out of the .Mountain city are
entitled to better aeeotnodations than
are afforded. What is needed is a de
cent coach, instead of a dirty caboose,
ami then the railroad people will find
out that the service thus provided will
he pleasing not only to Laurena but
to the people of Parksiiale, Cray Court
Owlngs, Fountain Inn, Shnpsonvlllc
and Greenville, and it will no doubt
have liberal patronage throughout tin;
The Advertiser should like very
much to see the matter taken up at
once, the situation explained and an
effective appeal mad.' to Supt. Ander
son for the proper accommodation
We do not believe he will ignore tin
matter: certainly be cannot if the
towns affected will only combine their
efforts, and go after what they want
Will it be done? Who will now lead
off in the matter? Or rather who will
tnke up the proposition and place it
S(|Uarely before (ho railroad people?

Mr. .1. II. Sullivan, who has it keen
appreciation of success and knows the
article wherever be sees it. furnishes
The Advertiser some Interesting sta
tistical items as gleaned from one ol
his farmer friend's diary. According
to these figures it is shown that this
particular planter, who lives in the
Shiloh section, lias sold during the
sprine, months $2-10 worth of hay. pens,
?12?; pigs. $?u; cows, $l?>n. And the
significant though natural thing in
connection with the above statement
is (he fact that lie has more pigs and
cows to sell, while a portion of his las:
year's crop of cotton is in the bonded
* * *
The Advertiser lakes this occasion
to commend the action of the Mount
ville Nigh school trustees in the mat
ter of increasing the salaries of the
teachers ami authorizing tho school
term to he extended from eight to nine
months for another year. The .Mount- ,
ville school, with Principal William P.
Culhertson at its head, ranks as one ol
the best in Laurens county.
It is claimed thai a recent inven
tion renders it practicable to make
cloth from wood. The fiber is made
into a kind of pulp and forced through '
holes in sheet steel, making a thread
which Is claimed can be woven as
readily as cotton yarn.

The following paragraph from an

"The row between Director Newell
and Secretary Bnllhlger makes the po
sition of the former untenable should
Mr. Bellinger remain in the cabinet.
That the secretaries not without in
